Heads Up! Short Stories Coming Soon to a Blog Near You!

That’s right! I’m going to post short stories right here on the blog! I’ve recently joined a writing group (more info below) and once a month we’re given a prompt for a short story. I’ve decided to post them here. I may publish them in a book down the road, I may develop one or two into a novel, I may hate them and print them, just so I can burn them. Who knows?! My point… Be on the look out for at least one short story a month.

Short Stories written by Author K.D. Reed

Some amazing things are happening! I’ve got two new full length novels in the works. I’ve found an amazing community on YouTube. And, I’ve gained a lot of new friends lately from Twitter. THINGS ARE ON THE MOVE.

I’m working on a science fiction novel. It’s post-apocalyptic and really cool. I started it for NaNoWriMo. And, while I learned NaNoWriMo is a NaNo-NoNo for me personally, I absolutely LOVE the story I started. So I’m going to keep going with it. It’s too good not to. Also! I’m currently in the process of creating a new author platform. I’ve felt the pull to write something Middle Grade. Call it fate. Call it destiny. Call it me trying to get my little niece and cousins to love reading as much as I do. I have to do this. I can feel it. But, to do so under the name K.D. Reed is going to be… problematic. My stuff is for grown-ups. Like… the grown-uppiest of grown-ups. If you’ve read my books, you understand. Therefore, when the time comes, I’ll be creating a whole new name and platform for my kid stuff.

Because I can.

I’ll also keep working under the name K.D. Reed at the same time, though. So don’t worry, adult people. I’m not going anywhere.

Next! Thanks to the beautiful people on YouTube, I’ve joined a writing group. As I mentioned above, we’ll be prompted for some short story work. It’s mostly for fun, but I wanted to share it with all of you lovely people.

Lucky you.

I want to quickly give a special thank you to Ben Sanders. We met on BookTube/AuthorTube (the people on YouTube talking about reading and writing, respectively) and he’s the super neat dude that organized our cool kids writing club. Yeah… it’s not actually called that. It just makes me feel like a cool kid, okay? Any who! Ben is really great, and a talented writer. Check out his YouTube channel. You’ll thank me later.

Lastly, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve moved most of my social media activity to Twitter. Facebook, especially right now, has A LOT of problems. Every time I log on I feel like Wesley in The Princess Bride when he’s hooked up to the machine.

So! Most of the time, I only go to Facebook for the groups I’m in and to keep up with family. There’s a lot of people I’m connected to there that I love both personally and professionally. (Not like in a hooker way. Like in a writing way. But, you knew that, right?) Moving to Twitter has gained me some amazing friends, and I like it A LOT better. Here’s my Twitter, if you want to follow me there.

That’s all the news! I’m hoping to post January’s short story tomorrow. Or soonish. Sooner rather than later. Definitely. Probably. Maybe.

As always, you guys are so great. I have the best readers. I really do. Thank you so much for sticking with me. Please know that you are appreciated.

Also…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Until tomorrow! (Or whenever…)

Exciting News! Book 3 Has a Title!

I’ve been a real jerk and teasing about this all over Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. But! I’m finally ready to reveal the big announcement I’ve been tormenting everyone with…

 

Paranormal and horror book Hell's Princess

 

 The third installment of Demonic Illusions is titled Hell’s Princess. And it’s going to launch this fall!

I’m really excited with how this series is shaping up. Delilah is learning what it means to love, Sam is learning what it means to love a demon, and none of it comes easy! Sometimes I worry my readers are going to curse my name with everything I have to put my characters through. I’M SUCH A *insert horrific expletive here*. Really, I’m the worst.

Stay tuned for a whole slew of announcements regarding Hell’s Princess. You know, official release dates, format options, cover reveal, etc… All of that and more is on its way. I promise!

If you still need to catch up, you can grab a copy of the first Demonic Illusions book Demonic Impulse here:

Amazon/Kindle

Barnes & Noble/Nook

iBooks

Before I wrap this up, I want to thank everyone who’s been behind me for this series. ESPECIALLY, my loving, enduring, understanding, trusting, extremely patient husband. Like I said, I’m the worst, and he’s totally okay with that. What a guy! I’d also like to thank my very best beta reader Jessie. Nothing gets released without her stamp of approval and I’m all the better for it. She’s been my writing support since I first had this crazy idea in like… 2008ish. Seriously, the best. And, my mom. She listens to all my crap about books and marketing and writing, plus all my other life complaints. She has to deal with a lot from me, and I need her all the time. Don’t care how old I am. I STILL need my mommy. Sorry not sorry.

Thanks everyone. See you soon!
